This week we have a diverse selection of essays for you to peruse, from a tribute to the late American novelist Peter Straub, to an impassioned defence of truth-seeking in the discipline of history. Barbara Kay has penned a touching essay on the young Queen Elizabeth, and you will find an editorial co-signed by all Quillette editors in support of Ukraine.
A few weeks ago we published an article by a young record collector, Max Wilson, about a Wisconsin prison band Upheaval.
Upheaval produced a record which would go on to become one of the most sought after 45rpms of all time. Yet despite this prized record, the incredible story of the band had never been told until Max penned his article for Quillette.
Max recently visited the last remaining survivor of Upheaval, Joe Hayes. Joe doesn't use the internet so Max printed the essay for him.
If you missed Max's article when it was published, you can read it here. I can promise that you won't be disappointed:
Until next week,
